​Working with local councils, both regional & metropolitan since 1998.

  • ​I have worked with Spinifex and Samantha Khosid as my direct recruitment consultant for over twelve months now. As the Director for Children’s Services, my portfolio is wide in regards to seeking casual and permanent labour hire. Spinifex as an organisation has undoubtably and consistently met all my expectations in support. From seeking new staff, to interviewing, payroll matters, communication, collaborating to final appointments across varied sites I have always experienced exemplary engagement and support systems. It is not only professionally reassuring, it is also personally valued to work with such a collectively helpful, solid, consistent and professional team.

  • ​Spinifex had always been my labour hire company of choice within the region. The candidates and workers supplied by Spinifex have been of the highest calibre from senior managers to traffic controllers. Samantha has always been quickly responsive to any calls, concerns or requests that I had, she would also gently nudge me if I may be delayed in responsiveness. Our quarterly meeting off-site greatly enhanced our professional relationship and trust and also enabled candid feedback and sharing of ideas. I strongly recommend Spinifex for not only supplying workers at a minute’s notice but sourcing high calibre candidates to interview.
